|Sleepmakeswaves / Tangled Thoughts of Leaving split [LostChildren077] - Lost Children|
It's been a while, but good things come to those who wait. Hailing from opposite ends of Australia, Perth's Tangled Thoughts of Leaving and Sydney's sleepmakeswaves are proud to present you with a shiny new split LP. It's a record from two bands that are very different yet one that finds an equilibrium between the seemingly disparate tendencies of the two groups. Although both bands find common ground in their latent electronic influences, sleepmakeswaves marry these ideas to their characteristi...

|Painting By Numbers - Live Demo [LostChildren078] - Lost Children|
It's always easier to form a band when it's not your first. Painting By Numbers has been a recurring project in the head of its architects long before it actually took shape in autumn 2008. Antoine Ollivier (Dawnshape) and Gregory Hoepffner (Radius System, Time To Burn, Template) always felt their belonging groups didn't let them experiment as much as they wanted. Soon joined by bandmate Axel Dallou (Radius System), the trio didn't ask too many questions and quickly started making noise, in a la...

|Part Rocket - Sparks and Beams [LostChildren069] - Lost Children|
The record was written towards the end of 2008, and recorded over the winter of 2009. It's something of a summer pop record. Or about as close as we'll ever get to writing a summer pop record anyway. We hope you like it. 'Sparks and Beams' is a beautifully crafted and studied record, full of interweaving guitar and bass lines and intelligent flowing drums, creating a gloriously chiming and melodic post/math-rock EP...

|From The Sky - A Warm Place With No Memory [LostChildren043] - Lost Children|
'A Warm Place With No Memory' is From The Sky's third release and displays a huge progression from their previous work, upping the complexity and ambition whilst retaining the melodic hooks, short compositions and detailed structure which sets them apart in the Post-Rock landscape. Multiple influences combine to produce a cohesive yet varied EP, from melodic passages to heavy riffs, rhythmic math to soaring post-rock noise...

|Inertia Blooms - The Past Is Just Behind You [LostChildren062] - Lost Children|
Inertia Blooms are currently in a place between two places. Full of new material, but concentrating on the last year of degrees. We have re recorded some things that have evolved since we first did them. One is a reworking of a track off the Hostages EP, the other was available on the Scrooge compilation that Robot Professor put out a couple of years back. You might recognise both of them as the collective last song we usually play at shows...

|Fugue - Ancient Glass [LostChildren072] - Lost Children|
Fugue presents an arduous journey through a quagmire of genre confusion and deceivingly orchestrated pieces of music. Love, time and a soft spot for over-complication gave birth to their first effort that is full of everything they think makes music great. There's something for everyone on this splendid 17 and a half minute adventure through a veritable sonic paradise. Download the Whole Release This work is licenced under a Creative Commons Licence...

|Magnets - Magnets [LostChildren057] - Lost Children|
What does Magnets sound like? Imagine, if you will, Don Caballero and Tortoise having a baby. At age ten, after seeing his parents killed in a tragic trapeze accident, Steve Reich adopted the child as his ward, and secretly trained him to be his partner in crime-fighting. Upon reaching puberty, the young band fell hopelessly in love, and shared it's most precious gift. Though Fugazi was a tender and generous lover, society wasn't ready to accept their love, and the romance was doomed...

|Tangled Thoughts of Leaving - Tiny Fragments [LostChildren067] - Lost Children|
Tangled Thoughts of Leaving's music is progressive by nature. The inclusion of sparse influences, guided by concept and fused together, is the conception of their own sound, as each musicians respective inspirations force the collective into unchartered territory. After several years of existence and growth, mid 2007 saw Tangled Thoughts of Leaving construct themselves a purpose built, make shift creative space...

|Hoarder Myna - Rememberable Rifts [LostChildren075] - Lost Children|
'Rememberable Rifts', the debut EP from progressive Leeds 3 piece Hoarder Myna, is an immensely tight, crisp sounding debut from another great UK band blurring, and expanding, the definition of Math Rock. Each song flows constantly, moving from one idea to the next, the roving guitar lines intertwine with the melodic bass patterns, underpinned by drums playing stacatto lead flourishes and driving rhythm simultaneously, before all comes together in harmonic unity...

|Helsingfors - Schematics [LostChildren070] - Lost Children|
Maths is the study of quantity, structure, space, change, and related topics of pattern and form. Rock is a naturally occurring solid aggregate of minerals and/or mineraloids. 'Schematics' is the debut EP from five piece Helsingfors, including all four ex-From The Sky members, and is an instrumental post-math-rock hybrid, a logical progression from their previous work. Upping the complexity and melodic layering mixed with upbeat, jarring indie-rock, 'Schematics' was recorded primarily as a live ...

|Charts and Maps - Enemies of C.Frias [LostChildren053] - Lost Children|
Los Angeles based indie-jazz/math-rock (though subtly defiant of both terms)band Charts and Maps have released a 4 song EP, titled "Enemies of C.Frias". Working with engineer/producer Chris Schlarb (whose solo projects and free-jazz duo I Heart Lung are released through Sufjan Steven's Asthmatic Kitty records), the band have managed to further hone their sound while losing none of the adventurous flair of their previous releases...

After two years, we welcome the return of Part Rocket with their third release 'In Limine', following on from their 'Kneel Before the Throne and Drink the Blood of your Own' EP, also available on Lost Children, and the 'Good Bye Morning Satellite' EP available at www.partrocket.com. Continuing along the leftfield-path-less-trod, Part Rocket's instrumental music takes influence from the tight and rhythmic structures of math rock and incorporates the delicacy, emotion and melody of latter day post...

|Loss of a Child - Carry Me Home [LostChildren079] - Lost Children|
'Carry Me Home' is the 5th Loss of a Child release and is their most expansive yet, a deeply layered album with flowing and interwoven melodies; contrasting instruments supporting, offsetting, and harmonising with each other and mixed for each to be heard though not necessarily under every listening environment, and certainly not on first listen; experimental through its strict structure and detailed song writing as opposed to the freedom and improvisation of many instrumental acts...

|The Shy Trafficker - Hard Fought, Found Thought [LostChildren038] - Lost Children|
'Hard Fought, Found Thought' is the second full length release from The Shy Trafficker, recorded in Seattle at Attercop studio by Reed Griffin, and follows their 2006 EP 'Halves and Have Knots'. The Shy Trafficker is an interesting equation to crack; it possesses an elaborate infrastructure of instrumental indie rock ideals, a jazz-sensibility, and heroic interludes to build thematic “songs within a song.” The Shy Trafficker has been described to have a “Chicago” type sound which builds ...

|Loss of a Child - Hundred Million Angels [LostChildren044] - Lost Children|
'Hundred Million Angels' is the fourth release from Loss of a Child, following on from the three albums all previously released on Lost Children. A single track clocking in at just over 20 minutes qualifies 'Hundred Million Angels' as an EP but the lack of repetition and wide breath of ideas ensure that this EP is in no way short-changing anyone, experimental through its strict structure and detailed song writing as opposed to the freedom and improvisation of many instrumental acts...

|Charts and Maps - Dead Horse [LostChildren088] - Charts and Maps|
The Lost Children Net Label proudly presents it's second release by Charts and Maps, even more intrinsically unclassifiable yet still grooving around in their unique texture of fusion and post-psychedelic. High-res (.flac) downloads available on our bandcamp page. Charts and Maps have always been a difficult band to figure out. I was at both their first and last shows - I saw them develop from a loud, jumbled mess of good ideas wrenched together at angles to one of the most aggressively forward-...
